Santa Ono trolls Adam Schefter after Jim Harbaugh Michigan football return announcement

OK, so there’s some friendly fire afoot. And even though University of Michigan president Santa Ono is new, having just come aboard this past fall, it turns out he’s well aware of what happened in 2014 when the Wolverines lured Jim Harbaugh back to the college ranks from the NFL.

On Monday evening, Ono announced Jim Harbaugh told him he will return to coach the maize and blue and will not depart for the NFL. The news was tweeted out by ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. But Ono remembers what happened when Harbaugh was on a plane to Ann Arbor in December 2014, even though Schefter himself is a Michigan alumnus.

In case you don’t remember, when Harbaugh was traveling to Ann Arbor to be announced as the new Michigan football head coach, Schefter tweeted that the Oakland Raiders were still in play, and that Harbaugh to Michigan was not a done deal.

Ono is proving he catches onto even Michigan memes, and he is certainly endearing himself more and more to the maize and blue faithful.
